"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better." -  John Ruskin 1819-1900

Dear President Scott Jones,

Happy New Year!

On this Sunday - Jan/9th - ASBA will be reaching impressive 82 years of existence! Congratulations on such a special date!

As you once said, keeping an Association relevant to the needs of its Members is always a huge challenge. In this regard, knowing all the services and hard work done by ASBA, I am absolutely sure that all Shipbrokers and Agents in the United States and Canada must be extremely proud for all that has been achieved by ASBA during the last 8 decades, always working to fulfill its main purpose of fostering ideals and standards of personal and professional conduct and practices.

From our side, on behalf of our Executive Committee and all our Members, I would like to express our most sincere thanks to you, your Board of Directors, Jeanne, Cris and all others involved in the Association, for all the invaluable assistance given by ASBA over the years!

ASBA has been a Member of FONASBA since 1970 and during all this period has certainly been one of our main and most important supporters! I can only hope that FONASBA has managed to have also been important and relevant to the needs of ASBA and your Members!

Kind personal regards,
Glen Gordon Findlay
